The Duncliffe Messenger (No.1)
THE DUNCLIFFE LIGHT BROWN DESCRIPTION
This generously sized messenger bag made from full grain aniline vegetable tanned bridal leather draws inspiration from the mail bags postmen used in bygone days. The very spacey main compartment has a separator to hold your iPad and mobile phone. Light brown finish with deep lustre on the outside and internal separator, the interior has otherwise been left natural as supplied after tanning – a soft creamy white texture and colour. An easy to grab handle is fixed to the lid of the bag and a beautiful sturdy adjustable shoulder strap with edge stitching is easily attached when you need to carry heavier loads. This bag is made to work for you whilst always looking good.
Solid brass buckles hand cast in England. Painted ‘Antique Brass’ effect metal snap hooks and ‘D’ rings.
Hand stitched using 100% polyester ‘Tigre Thread’ for durability. Approx. 1200 saddle stitches.
DYE and PROTECTION
Hand dyed using professional oil dye. Buffed with ‘Renapur Leather Balsam’ and ‘Sedgwick Leather Polish’ which can also be used for maintenance
